California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has proclaimed June as “Real California Milk Month.”  The proclamation honors the efforts of California’s more than 1,750 dairy families.

Governor Schwarzenegger’s proclamation says, “The dairy industry plays a significant role in strengthening California’s economy."

“The official proclamation of June as Real California Milk Month in California is a special celebration for our dairy families, particularly in these tough economic times,” said Stan Andre, chief executive officer of the California Milk Advisory Board.

Other states are planning events, as well.

In Wisconsin, events include dairy breakfasts, on-farm events, local dairy ambassador contests and county fairs. For more details, go to: www.wakeupwithdairy.com
